Who to Contact?

The structure of governance embraced by the WIAA extends the interests of its members to the local level. Because it is the membership--all 500+ high schools--that develops and applies the rules, attempts to contact someone with concerns or questions regarding the member’s rules and interpretations should first be directed to local school administration.

There are occasions relative to specific items when you may want to talk directly with secretarial-clerical-bookkeeping members of the staff or the business office rather than a member of the administrative staff. It would be assumed that in such cases the caller would ask the receptionist to refer him or her to the appropriate person. Situations involved would be information on paying dues, ordering rule books or supplies (forms), and questions about officials’ licensing procedures and materials, etc.
